The facility’s remote location has additionally hindered efforts to create such an infrastructure, although accommodation services continue to be accessible on an ordered schedule. It should be noted that computer use is prevalent across the world, with many guests making use of private computing devices such as laptops and smartphones with internet connectivity. However, without a reliable internet connection at the facility, their significance is severely restricted. It is also factual that Internet usage is extensive among the lighthouse residents, especially the guests as would be expected with holidaymakers, even though there is no dependable Internet connectivity in the premises. Rather, those who seek to access the internet must travel long distances to do so (Sithamparanathan et al., 2010, pp. 204-205).
This project intends to address the pronounced need for a high speed and reliable internet and network connectivity in the lighthouse area. Given the remote location, the only opportunity for providing Internet connectivity would be a satellite uplink. The use of a land-based fibre connections to the Internet would be hard to justify owing to the exorbitant associated costs of laying down the fibre connection between Rubha Reidh and the nearest access point that is more than 20 kilometres away. Instead of developing a conventionally wired LAN, a wireless mesh networking will be used to extent the whole
